Social Media and Leadership: The 2012 Presidential Race [Infographic]

Social media has come a long way in the past few years. From photo sharing to meme generation and proliferation, to “poking” and writing in 140 characters or less, it seems as though everyone is now involved across countless social media platforms.

Then we take a look at the four remaining Republican candidates stack up against the formidable social media prowess of President Obama.
